On January 9th 2015 a principal from Boone County is facing first degree sexual abuse charges.

Garth Emil Mock has been charged with sexual abuse by parent or guardian of one student from Van High School.

Two female students say they were going to attend the local Rough and Rowdy Brawl when they decided instead to go over to Mock’s apartment located in Kanawha City. The girls spent a short time in his living room before they went into his bedroom where Mock took turns having sex with both girls.

One of the young girls, 18 year old Destiny Lovejoy gave the victim statement to local authorities. The other girls identity is being withheld because she is underage.

Mock has been on administrative leave since January.
